  • "Give Alpaca a Starring Role!"

    "I love alpaca and I have replaced all wool sweaters with alpaca for sweaters. However, the American public, in general, is not too aware of alpaca.

However, i...

  • Ah, Alpaca!

    For thousands of years, Alpaca has been a source for fiber in South America.  They were first domesticated by tribes in the Andean highlands, most notably the Amerindians of Peru, and were a central component to the culture.

  • Maine

    WICKED GOOD PEOPLE Written by Becky, Brahms Mount's Client Services Specialist   The typical lifestyle of Maine is an enigma for many people.  Being the only state which borders exactly one other state, and packed away in the easternmost corner of the US, we’re a bit off the map for most.  With about 1.3 million people spread out over 35,...

  • Hallowell, Maine Part 1

    PART 1 We have to share an excerpt written by local Hallowell historian Sumner Webber: “In 1826, the ice industry began in earnest, employing thousands over the next 75 years. Frozen blocks loaded onto Hallowell's schooners travelled as far as Cuba and the West Indies.” Ice on the Kennebec We share this because of the ridiculous weather we’...

  • Hallowell, Maine Part 2

    PART 2 Many people ask about our little town.  Since we’ve begun in 1983, we’ve been welcomed into Hallowell as part of its charm and artistic focus.  Located south of Maine’s capital of Augusta, it’s a bit of a surprise for visitors—used to the sights of Maine’s famous coast—to find such a historic and welcoming neighborhood in the...
